You'll need to download and install the sound drivers from the computer manufacturer's website (if it's brand-name like Dell or Compaq) or from the motherboard manufacturer. Getting the computer manufacturer's driver is preferred, because sometimes they get custom hardware and the generic drivers aren't exactly right (although they'll usually work).

If your board is the model listed in your post, you can find the driver here. Thanks for using Fixya!

My dual core pc doesnt bring sound why? when i play music the video plys but the sound doesnt come out. some times it brings the msg 'there is no audio device'. am using sub hoofers

Your sound device is missing drivers software. The sound device is usually part of the motherboard. So the drivers are on the motherboard drivers CD. If you don't have the CD, you can download drivers from the website of the motherboard's maker.
